This is very sad I am sorry about your uncle. The situation you describe if the same in many countries including here, unfortunately, not many people follow guidelines, though in Canada it seems to be less worse than in the U.S., look at Florida. Unfortunately U.S. is misguided by a leader who claims the pandemic is over and COVID19 has vanished.
Hopefully in Canada our PM will keep borders shut, not for 1 month but whatever it takes, years, we do not want people to come here, from countries who's COVID19 numbers are worsening.
What you describe is one sad reality, eventually hospitals will work at overloaded capacity, they will have a choice to make and only take COVID19 patients, and if there is lack of equipment they will treat younger folks first.
Major respect to people who work in these hospitals, what the have to put up with and work under overloaded capacity.
Densely populated countries like India, are having it really bad with this virus, BUT there might be hope, MAYBE eventually herd immunity can be reached, SADLY lots will die and be infected. But there are pharmas in India, hopefully a candidate vaccine is approved for production and used FIRST in countries with the most infections of COVID19 !
Stay safe, I think the biggest mistake was for world leader to ease restrictions too soon, if people accepted a big sacrifice and stay 2-3 more months on lock down, I think a surge and second wave would be avoided,
providing that during ease of restrictions strict rules are enforced.
BUT how can you enforce strict rules in densely populated countries ? It is very sad to see so many innocent lives being taken by this virus.
Hope ? Take China as an example, they have the so-called second wave under control.........How ? With STRICT guidelines ENFORCED.......If other countries follow the same path, within weeks they can help bring this under control. A second wave does not have to be worse than the first.
Given the attitude of Western world, I am pessimistic !
I am glad to say that I follow guidelines and distancing, and will continue to do so.
When the hell are people going to understand that you can have COVID19 without any symptoms, AND you can SPREAD IT to others, and never get symptoms yourself.
I STRONGLY believe that anybody who does not follow rules should be accused of 3rd degree manslaughter.
